Hello all,

Been trying to remove the Map Reading Bulbs, however can't get them out. I'd appreciate it if someone could confirm if the bulbs are twist or pull? (replacing them with LED's).

Already changed number plate (white LED's) and interior bulbs (red LED's)


Thanks

Gjlatz

If it's the lights in the submarine unit , its far easier to take the hole unit out of the roof mounting . From there the holder can be removed by twisting it , then the 501 type bulb pulls out.

Or if you have the hands and fingers of a little girl like me you can pull them out without taking off the housing

That could have hurt! Think I might try your way, to be honest it took me about 15mins to the get the bulb back in!

after messing about for 10 minutes or so trying to get my bulbs out i got a small pair of long nose pliers and they came out no probs.... pushed others in then had to try and get them out again cos they were wrong way round as the LED bulbs i put in only work one way round

What type of led did you go for i know they are 501's but on ace parts they had two types of white, one was a wide spread, and the other was more direct beam just thought i would ask, thanks.
